Here’s What That Top Sanders Adviser Is Accused Of Doing

Sen. Bernie Sanders- FILE JAMES BUCK

Sen. Bernie Sanders apologized to women who were sexually harassed on his 2016 presidential campaign and thanked them 'from the bottom of my heart for speaking out'.

"To the women in that campaign who were harassed or mistreated I apologize".

The response comes less than 24 hours after Politico published a piece detailing accusations that one of Sanders's top advisers had forcibly kissed a subordinate woman in her 20s, and one week after the New York Times reported allegations from almost a dozen former campaign workers who say they were harassed and that their claims went ignored.

Sanders has been plagued with rumors over his mistreatment of females staffers during his 2016 campaign, as highlighted in a New York Times piece published Wednesday. "To be clear: no one who committed sexual harassment in 2016 would be back if there were a 2020 campaign", and described Becker's conduct as "deplorable and fundamentally unacceptable". "And that is changing fast".

Mr Becker denies any harassment, and no criminal charges have been filed.

Sanders, 77, is an independent who ran for the Democratic nomination in 2016. But accounts of harassment from women who worked on his last campaign threaten to tarnish his image as a progressive and come at a time when female voters are central to the Democratic Party's strategy for defeating President Donald Trump.

The accuser said she did not alert higher-ups on the campaign team about the incident due to the campaign being over.

Suspicious packages sent to Indian consulate, other missions in Australia
Ten News reporter Candice Wyatt told Nick McCallum there was about a dozen police outside the Spanish Consulate in Carlton. There are also reports the Korean, Greek, Italian, Pakistani and Egyptian consulates have also been in lockdown.

Politico's report said the "female staffer did not report the incident immediately because the campaign had just ended at the time of the incident".

CNN reported on Wednesday that Jeff Weaver, the longtime Sanders confidant and 2016 campaign manager, will not return to the role he held in 2016 should Sanders chose to run again, and Friends of Bernie Sanders confirmed this to VTDigger.

"This can't happen in 2020", the woman said in Politico. "I apologize", Sanders tweeted on Thursday. Friends of Bernie Sanders, the senator's main campaign committee, said Becker would not be a part of any future campaigns in response to the allegation against him. "You can't run for president of the United States unless you acknowledge that every campaign demands a safe work environment for every employee and volunteer", the woman continued.

Mr Sanders' Twitter apology comes after he said sorry on CNN last week "to any woman who felt that she was not treated appropriately".

Politico also reported that over a half-dozen staffers who worked with Becker on the 2016 campaign said there was "a pattern of other inappropriate behavior or poor management".

"Yes, I was a little bit busy running around the country trynna make the case", he said when asked if he had missed the harassment on his campaign.
